    1. Yes that is good news actually as I have one title already directly placed with Ozura i.e. ‘Mouse Panic! 2’ and one in the wings BUT I have yet to make any money from them yet? so it will be interesting to see what % share of that $20M revenue I actually make back – probably 10$ and ‘love u long time’ given the amouont of piracy over that side of the globe 😛

      Is game development for big boys only?
      How do I submit games to Ozura? I’d tried to contact Glu, Jamdat and Gameloft, all didn’t reply my email 🙁

    3. No not really. I would suggest you give the bigger players a miss and go for the medium sized ones first and submit some eye candy to them via their contact emails on there site(s).
      Eventually when you do get going they will come to you to some degree if they like what they see?… beware not all are good though but that’s for you to find out on your own like everything in else life – no free lunch to be had in mobile games anyway at least for sure.

      lets see what is worth 20mil 😉
      Mobile Games Business is only for the big boys. Sad but true. Dont go to the big ones go to the midsize or even smaller publishers. Good luck

    5. I agree the big revenue is of course as you say, but mobile games design and programming design is within your reach and the smaller revenue it brings. The truth is don’t be put off by such cobblers! big things grow from little mobile acorns and all things in life are not great becasue they are big (not including money or breasts!)

      Dear Developer,
      I’ve tried to send you email however it has been bounced back. Kindly contact us via llsee@ozura.com. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you!
